The Chief Dental Officer has announced that dental practices will be allowed to begin the process of reopening dental practices in England from Monday 8th June.
Our first priority has always been patient and staff safety, and, as a result, we will only open once we have taken the necessary precautions to ensure we deliver safe and effective treatment. We are working through these important details as the national guidance in the way we work is due to be released to us on Tuesday. We will, after Tuesday be in a position to take the necessary steps to ensure we can re-open as quickly as possible whilst maintaining high levels of patient safety.
Our next update is likely to be on Tuesday evening or Wednesday through social media, so please be patient with us in the meantime and like and follow us on Facebook http://bit.ly/GDCG-FB and Instagram https://bit.ly/GDCG-Insta as well as checking this page of our website regularly where we will keep you updated along the way.
To begin with, we will prioritise urgent cases or patients who have been in the middle of existing treatment, (unable to see us for 2 months,) so if you require care, please email us on email@example.com and we would be happy to help once we receive the guidance on Tuesday. Our phone lines are extremely busy, so we are best placed to respond by email.
For those requiring routine care, please do not attempt to contact us yet as we are giving priority to those in greater need. We are determined to resume routine care as quickly as it is safe to do so and will keep you fully informed throughout the process. We envisage routine appointments will be available towards the end of June and early July. We are currently also being advised hygiene services will be available towards the end of June. If you’d like a routine appointment, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll deal with your enquiry as soon as possible.
Our video consultation system will remain available going forward and we encourage our patients to make use of it where possible: https://bit.ly/GDCG-Video. Alternatively please use the form below and we will endeavour to come back to you as soon as possible.
When we do return social distancing procedures will remain in place in line with government guidelines so we will have a reduced volume of patients into the practice.
Thank you for supporting our family-run business in these difficult times, we hope you are all keeping well.
